Country excursions out of London

We can confidently recommend the following interesting and pleasant day and half-day excursions.

Burnham Beeches. Buckinghamshire. Over 500 acres of fine woodland scenery bought by a far-sighted Corporation of London as long ago as 1879. By Green Line coach from Victoria.

Epping Forest, bought a year earlier than Burnham Beeches, is a magnificent 6,000 acres of forest land. Railway from Liverpool Street station to Chingford or Green Line coach from Baker Street.


Regent’s Park and Hampstead

If instead of going eastward along Holborn from Staple Inn we were to go westward we would come to New Oxford Street and then to Oxford Street itself, a popular shopping centre with several well known stores. At Oxford Circus we meet Regent Street and a few hundred yards up on the right are the headquarters of the British Broadcasting Corporation

The Post Office Tower


So far we have not mentioned Bloomsbury, which is well known to many visitors if only by reason of the number of hotels it contains. Bloomsbury extends north from Holborn and Oxford Street to the Euston Road and west from Gray’s Inn Road to Tottenham Court Road, which is marked from afar by the 580 foot Post Office Tower

Westminster Pier

London from the River

One of the pleasantest ways of seeing London is from a river boat, and constant summer services run from Westminster and Charing Cross piers to the Tower and Greenwich downstream and to Battersea and Richmond upstream.


The West End and Kensington

Our third route takes us from Trafalgar Square westward into Pall Mall, a long straight thoroughfare extending to St. James’s Palace. We pass Haymarket on the right, with the lofty New Zealand building on the corner, and just beyond it glance into the pleasant little Royal Opera Arcade. So we come to Waterloo Place, at the foot of Regent Street. Across the way is the celebrated Athenaeum Club, with its classic frieze.
